The pneumatic installation of the Lift & Locate Unit has to be done according to the pneumatic diagram to ensure the correct operation of the unit. The supplied air fittings are designed for 6 mm air tubing. The supplied compressed air must be dried and filtered and the pressure must be set in the defined range.
 
Flow controls should be used to adjust the lift and lowering motion of the unit.
 
A clamping unit has to be installed directly to the main air supply to ensure an immediate reaction to a pressure loss. This unit shouldn’t be used for holding the Lift Locate in a certain position.
